Pierce Atkinson

Four years after Studying Interior Design in Montreal, Pierce found himself on a photo shoot assisting stylists and discovered the relationship between design and fashion. He then made his way to props and sets and hasn’t looked back.

“I always find it interesting to have to work as a sort of chameleon and appeal to the many different aesthetics of the client or art director I’m working with. That’s what keeps my job so fascinating, no two shoots are the same, keeps me on my toes.”

He knows the metro system like the back of his hand and always strikes up a conversation with his Über driver. When sourcing props he is willing to sift through vintage shops for days or carry a piano on his back.

He always shows up on set with a smile and a willingness to learn.
